Acropolis 03 The Caryatids by Kevrekidis Acropolis 03 The Caryatids by Kevrekidis
The Acropolis of Athens, Greece - Picture 03 of 05

The Caryatids. Statues of young women clad in peplos. They supported the roof of the south porch of the Erechtheion (420 B.C.), and probably were the work of Alkamenes, a student of the great sculptor Pheidias.

That is stunning, but you can imagine how even more incredible the whole building would have looked when the stones were freshly cut thousands of years ago :)

One of the Caryatides (statues) was stolen years ago by the British. It’s now at the British museum in London. The Greek government requested the return of the statue and other artifacts from the Acropolis and the Parthenon…
